A 25-year-old man has appeared in court charged with the murder of two men whose bodies were found buried on farmland in Cornwall last Friday.

Thomas Haigh, of no fixed address, was arrested in West Yorkshire. He made no plea to Bodmin Magistrates.

Two bodies were found buried in a car on a farm near St Austell. Police said the bodies were still being identified.

Officers are investigating the disappearance of Brett Flournoy, 31, and David Griffiths, 35.

Mr Griffiths, from Plymouth, who was living in Bracknell, Berkshire, and Mr Flournoy, a professional boxer from the Wirral, Merseyside, were last seen on 16 June in Cornwall.

A second man, Ross Stone of Trenance Downs, near St Austell, has already been charged with disposing of a corpse to obstruct a coroner.

Mr Stone and Mr Haigh are due to appear at Truro Crown Court on Friday.
